Or possibly vice versa.

I'm tending - perhaps optimistically - to see Bush The Sequel as an
opportunity for the far right to over reach itself and eventually burn
itself out. I think the US needs to get this out of its system, and once
the fallout settles (possibly literally) it may yet turn out that everyone
will be a lot more realistic about what a far right agenda means in
practice. Perhaps even in a Never Again kind of a way.

Meanwhile, I doubt that funding new music is going to be high on the agenda
on the new administration, so I hope those in the US who are trying to do
this for a living aren't going to have too hard a time of it.

If nothing I think else we're going to be seeing a *lot* more subversive
art now. Which is not as good a thing as not needing to be subversive in
the first place, but I suppose it's a consolation of sorts.
